Before and After: Shabby Chic Antique Fireside Ottoman

So I met some super fabulous people who were selling off the remnants of their grandfathers antique store.  This is one of the MANY pieces I purchased.  She's not much to look at now.  Tired finish and ugly, faded floral tapestry fabric.  With no cush for our tush! Or your toes for that matter.  But, look at the bones!  This gals gotta great shape and just needs a little makeover!

 I took the seat off and layered on some Chalk Paint in Old White.  While it was drying I set to work on reupholstering the seat.
 I found some bright and cheery fabric with the colors I love so much right now--turqouise and teal!  Don't you love the pattern?  It's sort of Gypsy meets shabby chic!
 I even covered buttons in matching fabric and did some light tufting.  Gorgeous!!!

Now she's a beauty with new life!!!
